Somewhat Overkill
3 Star Review   By DickB on Adorama - Aug 8, 2013   

While I have yet to use the camera there are already several things that make the camera not user friendly. First you can't charge the battery without it being in the camera. This precludes having a charged spare battery in hand. There is a quick set-up sheet for the camera, but it is just that... how to insert the battery and SD card, not how to use the camera. The user manual comes in 20 or so languages and is on a disc, so unless you lug a computer with you, there is no way to access it while in the field. The camera has so many functions that you either "play" with the camera to figure them out, or you have to sit at the computer then hope you remember what the disc presented when you head out into the field. Adorama provides a neoprene camera case when you buy the camera. The camera doesn't fit in the case unless you force it. Then removing it becomes an issue as from what I've already seen, when you force the camera in the case, you inadvertently turn the camera on.

Multipurpose camera
5 Star Review   By Dr Jane on Adorama - Jul 19, 2013   

This is a camera that gives nice photos out of water and in. Use the A setting and landscape for above ground and there a number of underwater settings to try as we'll. finally, the panoramic is neat , but you have to stay perfectly level as you pan. Very cool camera.

I am not a photography expert so I can't speak to the technical attributes of this camera. I river float and fresh water fish here in Virginia, and love snorkeling and surf fishing at the ocean. This camera is everything I wanted it to be. It is taking gr

Bravo to Olympus for upgrading their series of waterproof, freeze proof and crush proof cameras. I had the first generation which was unbearable to use (poor poor battery time, high lag time for startup and between shots, and poor poor performance in low
